Stewart Family Photos

I purchased this batch of photographs at Antique Warehouse Mall in February 2017. This return is a bit different than the others. I photographed and posted all the images to a family tree on Ancestry.com for anyone that may be searching for family since I wasn’t able to track anyone down myself. A year later, […]

Bucky’s Scrapbook

I purchased Bucky’s 1950s scrapbooks, photos, and school papers from Antique Warehouse in mid-2015 with the intent to repair and then research to return, but since it was so large, it ended up being put away in a suitcase until March 2016.   When I finished repairing the scrapbook last month, I then used Ancestry.com […]

Gleasons Back Home for the Holidays

Since early summer, I have been collecting photographs from Antique Warehouse that once belonged to a family with the surname Gleason (many photos are about or over 100 years old). Since they are all spread out over a large family tree, and I have an Ancestry.com subscription, I decided to scan them all at a […]

Patricia’s High School Photo Album

I found this large photo album at an antique shop a year or two ago at a thrift shop called City Thrift. It sat in my living room along with a bunch of other old photo albums I had and I had forgotten that it had photos in it as the others were all empty. […]

Siblings Hattie and Charles

This is a cabinet card photograph, circa 1890, that I believe I picked up at at Sheffield Antique Mall a few years ago. I used Ancestry.com, and most likely an obituary, to discover that the baby, Charles, had a living grandson in Memphis, Tennessee. I contacted the grandson, John, in 18 March 2015 via Facebook. […]

Harold’s High School Photos

I picked these photos up, along with a bunch of others (including the photo of Michael and Nancy), at Town Square Antique Mall in Collierville, Tennessee on 1 July 2015.  They are both of the same teenaged boy named Harold. The small photo was taken in 1930, when he was a sophomore, and the larger […]

Michael and Nancy

I found this adorable snapshot of two children, siblings Michael and Nancy, at Town Square Antique Mall in Collierville, Tennessee on 1 July 2015. The photograph is dated “July 1939”. I used Ancestry.com to find relatives and was able to find a cousin of theirs on 3 July 2015. I discovered that the children grew […]

Juanita’s Wedding

I got these papers, along with a bunch of others not belonging to Juanita, at Antique Warehouse a few months ago.  They came in a wonderful old suitcase which I didn’t take the time to go through until just last week. Juanita got married at the end of 1945, but they were still celebrating into […]

Kathleen and Ira’s Wedding Album

I found this wedding album at Mid-South Outlet in their boutique section in January 2015. I thought it was such a beautiful album and it was so sad that it had somehow ended up in a thrift shop. I found their granddaughter, Kaydee, almost right away on Facebook that evening and sent her a message.  […]

Jack Pirtle’s Chicken

I believe I acquired this circa 1905 cabinet card of Orva and Hershel Lewis from Sheffield Antique Mall in the mid-2000s. Upon researching the names years later, I came across the history page of the old website of Jack Pirtle’s Chicken. Young Orva would grow up to marry Jack Pirtle and the two of them […]
